This project started out as a way for my brain to get acquainted with a new digital audio workstation (Renoise) but then, little by little, it also became a way for me to pay tribute to some old school video game songs I grew up with and loved as a kid. I picked some of my favorite songs, took some liberties with them and created this EP. I hope it's as fun to listen to as it was to make.
